In addition to PRAVANA’s full range of VIVIDS, PASTELS and NEONS color lines, the brand recently launched VIVIDS LOCKED-IN, which allows entrants even greater creative opportunities. Submissions will be accepted through September 30, with winners announced in October through PRAVANA’s social media outlets, website and community email blast.


This year’s judging panel includes PRAVANA Guest Artist and celebrity stylist Danny Moon of Andy Lecompte Salon, Vadre Grigsby, PRAVANA Artistic Color Director and James Gartner, PRAVANA Guest Artist. Entries will be judged based on creativity, technique and overall impact. Moon was named the winner of the first-ever “Show Us Your VIVIDS” contest and has since created a following that includes numerous celebrities. He has also lent his talents to create looks for this year’s new PRAVANA VIVIDS LOCKED-IN campaign.



Need another reason? Last year’s Show Us Your VIVIDS first place winner Maria Santana’s look was “on FIRE and smoldering from within,” earned the title thanks to her use of both ChromaSilk Crème haircolor and VIVIDS creative colors. “Using VIVIDS in a new, inspired way of exploding brightness and intensity into ‘traditional’ haircolor takes VIVIDS use even further into the realm of everyday haircolor,” says Vadre. Maria’s seamless technique and style led her to not only take home the win, but also saw her photo included in a major marketing campaign for PRAVANA.
